Creative Moments Challenge – Red, white and blue

Today I am bringing you another red-white and blue card for the Creative Moments challenge. I do love the colour cobination of red and blue for cards and this image from Mirtillamente has been coloured with Promarkers before being assembled into a card using Kanban papers again. The sentiments have all been stamped by hand using Polkadoodles clear stamps – isn’t it a lovely font?

My baby girl will be 17 next week – I can hardlt believe it! Anyway , I hope she likes the card and its nod to this birthday being jubilee year.

Creative Moments Challenge – Red, White and Blue!

June sees the UK celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – This remarkable woman has spent 70 years on the throne and at 96 still works!  As we head into July, we see the USA celebrates 4th July  and the French celebrate Bastille Day, so we thought Red white and blue would be a perfect optional twist for the Creative Moments challenge this month!   The backing paper I used is vintage Kanban (I think produced for the last jubilee!) this card is made for another remarkable woman – my sister, Francesca. She has so many challenges and can still laugh. Happy birthday to you!

I have chosen this sassy digi stamp from Mirtillamente, who are sponsoring the challenge over at Creative Moments.

Father’s Day is coming and when I saw this delightful coloured digi on the Polkadoodles website I knew it would be perfect for my Dad. It can also be bought as line art, but I got the coloured image with backing papers and embellishments. The trim was a bit of extravagance as I saw this in Hobby craft aand thought though expensive , it would be perfect for what I need here.
